How about Promised Land on 4-1-80 in Passaic, NJ, with Jerry & Brent on drums, Bob on the organ, Bill on bass, Phil on lead guitar and Mickey on rhythm guitar and lead vocals?

When Quinn debuted in Oakland on 12/30/85 it was a second set opener. Later it mostly slipped into the encore slot. I consider that 12/30/85 show a lot better than the next night's New Years show.

Another song I remember seeing debut as an opener was Day Job, on 8/28/82 in Veneta (it was the 10th anniversary of legendary 8/27/72 Creamery show and expectations were high). Day Job opened the second set. Not quite what we were hoping for.
